Some expectation the PM will commit to net zero by July

There is an expectation Prime Minister Scott Morrison will commit to a net zero emissions target in June or July says Sky News Political Editor Andrew Clennell.

The United States is imposing increasing pressure on nations to reduce reliance on fossil fuel resources with President Joe Biden making climate diplomacy a top priority and inviting 40 world leaders to a virtual summit this Friday.

Mr Clennell said at least the Liberals “want to find a plan” to achieve net zero emissions even if they have not yet made a commitment.

He pointed out Labor have made a commitment to net zero emissions by 2050 but have failed to reveal a plan about how they will get there.
